Painting en Plein Air mainly in Watercolour in Polizzi Generosa Sicily
13-20 MAY 2017
Escape and be Inspired painting in Polizzi Generosa on the beautiful Italian island of Sicily.
The perfect base for a painting holiday Polizzi Generosa has been inhabited for at least 2500 years, an ancient and historic town in the heart of Sicily, in a stunningly beautiful location, perched on its 900-metre high ridge set against the backdrop of the Madonia mountains. Only 50 minutes’ drive from the popular resort of Cefalu on the northern coast, Polizzi is little visited by tourists, despite its superb vistas, surrounding mountains and notable historic and artistic features.
Linda is working with hosts Carl Gardner and Sylvie Pierce who own and run therealsicily.com.
Accommodation is in their beautiful home and guest house situated within 4 acres of planted garden, with a shady terrace, small unheated plunge pool, barbecue area and orchards. The house is located on the hillside facing Polizzi and has stunning 180-degree views.
Painting locations will include the mountains, local historic towns, the local market and a day at the coast.
